Later at a press conference, Blatter said, "I am, I would say, a relaxed president after the meeting...I am more than confident now after this congress here that we are going forward with energy and a lot of optimism."

Warner said, "The members of the executive committee and congress, all of them, have said they're happy where they are...Nobody expressed any displeasure with Mr. Blatter's office. But out of fair play, they would like to hear what the other person has to say."
